This magnetic door sensor can be used with an IP camera or security camera recorder that has alarm inputs. Once connected to a proper camera or recorder with alarm inputs, the recording device can be programed to take a snapshot, record, and send push notifications or email alerts. Our DVRs, NVRs and security cameras with alarm-in connections have been tested with this door sensor to provide alerts within 1-3 seconds of the sensor activating.

We cannot guarantee its compatibility with hardware not purchased from us.

To use this sensor first wire it to the device's alarm inputs and then enable the alarm settings of that device. The setting for this particular sensor is NC or Normally Closed. After you've enabled the alarm input and configured the NC setting you can then choose which events you would like to occur upon alarm activation. Select "Record" to save a recording, "Snapshot" to save a snapshot, and enable the types of alerts such as buzzer, log, or email. Our remote viewing App can subscribe to push notifications from an alarm based input as well.
